What lies beneath: a subterranean map of London

London Subterranea, Stephen Walter, 2012

No matter how functional the tube map is, we would be lying if we said it wasn’t a tad boring sometimes. Despite its comprehensive representation of London, it doesn’t say much about how lively and full of history our city is. It says even less about what lies beneath. Stephen Walter created this phenomenally detailed hand-drawn map specifically for the Mind the Map exhibition. The dense map of information annotates the fact and fiction of subterranean London, making your journey just that little bit more colourful. With the lines barely visible, what if you took them away all together? The London Transport Museum is hosting a presentation and Q&A led by Shane Walter on July 3, showing how film can be used to document a place or journey bringing it to life.Tickets are £10 which includes a free visit to the Museum within a month.
